This coming Sunday (Oct. 23), Birthmark Doula Collective will host #BlackBirthMatters, a day-long conference at the Neo Jazz School of Music (1683 N. Claiborne Ave.) focusing on “issues, such as birth violence, reclaiming spirituality in birth, birth in/justice, the birth/abortion divide as well as midwifery and doula care.”
 
Founded in 2011, Birthmark Doula Collective offers a wide array of services to the New Orleans community. “Birthmark Doula Collective is dedicated to supporting, informing, and advocating for pregnant and parenting people and their families in New Orleans,” explained Latona Giwa, maternal-child health registered nurse, birth doula, and co-founder of the Birthmark Doula Collective. “We offer childbirth education, birth doula and postpartum doula services, and lactation support on a sliding scale so that the all families can access the services. In addition, we operate a birth doula mentorship program to help student doulas become professional doulas and participate in advocacy, community engagement, and community education projects on issues of maternal and infant health, health disparities, and racial justice.”
